What happens when a teenage pitching prodigy meets up with a WNBA star? The Players’ Tribune wanted to find out.

WNBA star Elena Delle Donne and teenage baseball phenom Mo’ne Davis recently met at Ursuline Academy in Wilmington, Delaware to sit down for a wide-ranging conversation about fame, social media and the visibility of women in sports.

And they took a moment to teach each other a little about how to play their respective sports.

Watch below as Elena, a former McDonald’s All-American who now plays for the Chicago Sky, learns how to throw a fastball, and Mo’ne, the first girl to pitch a shutout in Little League World Series history โ€”ย and 13-year-old authorย โ€” practices how to nail a step-back jumper.

Mo’ne Davis’ book, Remember My Name, is available now via HarperCollins.
